    Does the new Facebook application that sends a message to your phone use up your text messages? I only use the $5 [200 text] messages and have been wondering since this new application has sent a text-like message to my phone when someone responds to a request.

    It's not a text message it's a push notification and if you have a data plan it costs nothing.

    weird Facebook thing I've noticed

    I upgraded to the new Facebook app with the option to sync your friends pictures and Facebook info into your contacts and when I did that, I ended up with pictures in my contacts for people that don't have Facebook profiles. Some of those who do have Facebook profiles, the picture that attached to their contact in my phone was someone else. When I deleted the picture, it just comes right back even after deactivating the Facebook sync feature. Anyone else have this happen??

    No, it doesnt count towards your text messages plan.

    Yes, I have noticed the same thing. I've got several friends with Facebook accounts and having their number in my phone and their picture is wrong and the link to their Facebook account is wrong.

    Another thing it did was, I have 2 "Mike Brown's" in my contacts it deleted the information from one of the Mike Brown's with information from just the one that has a Facebook account. Now I have 2 Mike Brown's with all the same information.

    Has anyone else noticed that the Push notifications are sketchy ?

    Sometimes they come through, sometimes not for me, anyone else?
